About Me

I dedicate myself to make dances and texts and to teach how to reach one' s own personal poetics on stage in a spontaneous and immediate form.

Paolo
I'm an Italian performer specialized in the art of dance improvisation and instant composition. My way to compose movements and voice defines a clear poetic and a specific use of time and space on stage.To acquire the skills of my own dance style, I have gone through different theatre and movement’s techniques. Since 15 years I practice regularly the Chinese disciplines of Tai-ji Quan and Qi Gong.
Extremely active in the world of independent art, I continuously create and make dance pieces in different Countries. As performer, my interests are direct to solo and group compositions, relation with live-music and perform in unconventional spaces. As a teacher, I have developed a body-mind technique that facilitates the growth of creative skills through the acquisition of specific tools for the performance.

In my performances I let the boundaries between dance and theatre, sounds and poetry merge into one single matter.

The work is focused on the practice of instant composition as a specific form of art to create pieces of dances and theatre.

Paolo
The work is focused on the practice of instant composition as a specific form of art to create complete pieces of dances and performances in intself. This clear intention of study makes the approach to the movement direct and pragmatic and, at the same time, makes it open and sensitive to the research of own personal poetic.
The material that he proposes in my classes is characterized by a specific training on intuition as an immediate tools to create dance and text in performance. My teachings include a clear work on the body’s anatomy, partnering elements of physical contact, as well a deep observation of the cognitive and emotional processes behind any movement.

Tai-ji and QI Gong are two ancient Chinese disciplines based on the laws of Nature.

Paolo
Through a different perception of our body, a greater muscle relaxation and a refined sensivity, we will learn how to create movements in a natural and organic way, "effortless".
These principles of movement, in addition to the therapeutic benefits, are an effective and direct tools to enjoy other activities such as martial arts, meditation, dance, sports and other disciplines.


Music Making

Lately I've also been dedicating myself to the creation of music and poetry. In this recent exploration I am learning new production techniques, but at the same time I am using the same principles of theatrical creation. The same compositional laws applied to new mediums and contexts.

The two worlds

There are only two worlds: the Inside and the Outside.
If you go to the Outside, you can't know the Inside.
If you go to the Inside, the Outside appears as a dream.
So, which way do you want to go?

Vanilla RoseWood

A solid mist of colour,
Farway, in the blurry memory of a perfume,
I become visible again,
Immediate
Tangible
Through this sense-less time,
From the lack of your kisses already gone.

The Narrations

Water

Pathway
Each word is unique.
Three words create a short narration.

And we are living through narrations.

Your past is made by precise words,
my future is created by a personal grammar.

Our present is a streaming of geometries generated from flesh and bones.
Body narration is unique,
and further than this,
every narration doesn’t belong to us.
